This is straight out of the camera, processed in Lightroom with minor reduction in exposure.  The Sony A7s is remarkable.

I followed these crows for a couple blocks (on bike) and then posted up on this corner and snapped shots as they flew by.

cleveland birds 12-2012 (1)

It was cold, freezing cold.   The kind of cold that forces most people to walk directly to their desired location with zero dilly dallying and a resentment for red lights.  What were these birds doing ?  Shouldn’t they be hiding out in a Home Depot or something ?

Canon 5D Mark III – ISO 400, Canon 14mm, f/7.1, 1/400

Yes, the 14mm is an amazing lens.  This lens has two drawbacks.  It is very wide, giving you few options once it’s on your camera.  Secondly, the lens, the actual glass is impossible to protect.  You can’t use a filter and the hood barely offers protection.   While shooting with this lens, you have to constantly be aware of anything that could strike your lens.

dave castro Ferrari 458 Miami 14.2

We left the hotel at the same time, 6pm, headed towards 14.2 at “I AM CrossFit” in Miami, Florida.  I had a driver, and Dave had to drive himself.  I wasn’t expecting to see him on the crowded Miami highways, but there he was.  I lowered my window and blasted him with the Canon 1DX + Canon 24-70mm.  I snapped 10 photos and this was the best one.
